The question no one is asking... what settings are you running your games at?

You have to understand that there is a bit of skepticism with the results you're providing us. 70 fps at 1080p on some of these titles is very far fetched, even at low.

Is it our business to believe you? No.

However, I don't think it's wise to run a 1440p monitor on a dual graphics card (single PCB with two GPU's) from 2008 with 512mb of GDDR3 VRAM.

Buy a GTX 1050ti or as mentioned, an RX580. Cheap upgrades. Then look at a monitor.

1440p will (at best) cut those numbers in half. Not only are you asking the GPU to do 70% more work, you're also cramming 70% more stuff in the ram. The higher the res the more bandwidth matters, .5gb 800mhz DDR3 is going to stutter. Not sure if you can force a higher resolution but if you can you should try.
I tend to believe that the monitor is the most important part of a gaming rig but unless you're current monitor is garbage I really thing the GPU should come first this time otherwise you'll be running it at 1080p anyway.

Games listed are quite conservative when it comes to shaders and VRAM usage. Also DX11 and 12 uses a lot MORE VRAM than earlier versions.

The question is whether you want to play newer games on higher resolutions.

Supports up to 2560x1600 over dvi. So yeah it can do 1440p or even 1600p. At 60hz anyways.

Thanks for sharing the photos. Glad to see you're able to pull of some impressive feats with this gpu!

It's worth noting that most of the games, you are sacrificing detail where needed to achieve 60fps. As well, I still have doubts that 60fps is achieved in sequences with action, like for instance in CS:GO. Doubling the amount of pixels will only create more issues. However, that's not really the point.

Technically, your card can output to 1440p but in my honest opinion, you're going to have a bad time.

You can easily test this yourself prior to purchasing a new monitor by going into the Control Panel & super sampling to 1440p. I'm not sure if your GPU has access to these features but I would assume so.

My safe recommendation, without knowing the specs of your rig, is to upgrade to a 1050ti or similar card. As you will not have to worry about the PSU or any other replacements. Technically not a 1440p card but it will easily handle the games you play. I run a GTX 780 which is about equivalent to a GTX 1050ti in terms of game performance, and most of my games, with tweaks, run above 60fps at 1440p.

Edit: If you're using DVI-D, you can run higher than 60hz but you will run into issues as indicated here:
